Cloudy amber color, creamy head. Light aroma of hazelnuts and cherry pits, then some cherry, with a sour impression. Highly carbonated, a bit salty, with some yeast spiciness, light cherry fruitiness, and moderate final astringency. A bit rough but good.

brokensail (13616) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 29, 2012
Pours a murky orange-red color with an off-white head. There is a very nice cherry aroma to this. Plenty of sweet fruit, a mild tartness, and some citrus zest. A hint of grass and mild barrel/wood character. The flavor is a bit watered down, it seems, but there is a very nice cherry character. Lots of fruit skins, too. Some grass, a bit of lemon zest, and mild wood. A moderate tartness, a bit of red wine, and a fair amount of yeast.

Koelschtrinker (13105) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 29, 2015
Säuerlich malziger Beginn mit direktem holzigen Einfluss. Hell, milde Noten von Kirsche, sehr süffig. Vom Aroma unauffällig, was nur deswegen schade ist, weil 8,5% hierfür nicht notwendig sind. Abgesehen davon ein rundes und gelungenes Bier. 7/10/11/8/9/9
